Gilmour contributed to them having thier best seasons ever.
You don't think it's an interesting coincidence that Gilmour has what are easily his two best seasons offensively, fueled largely by PP offense (his ES offense was not terribly different to what he had been putting up before), when he gets the league's best PP specialist added to his wing?
Where is Fedorov in your all time list, stop dodging the question? Which post 1980 players do you rank above him.
As it stands right now, on March 27th, 2013?
Without further revision, it is these players who played all or part of their career post-1980 ranked above Fedorov:
Gretzky, Lemieux, Yzerman, Hasek, Jagr, Lidstrom, Bourque, Roy, Sakic, Fetisov, Potvin, Robinson, Bossy, Clarke, Trottier, Messier, Chelios, Park.
The first few post-1980 players behind Fedorov are:
Forsberg, Makarov, Lafleur, Kurri, Coffey, Dionne, Ovechkin, Crosby, Larionov
Ignore that Fedorov also had coffey, lidstrom, yzerman, primeau all score or assist on a large sum of Fedorov's points, i've seen the boxscores. Detriot in 1994 was the much better team. Gilmour puts up 120 on detriot.
Define "large sum". Is this that all of these players, total, were involved in a large part of the offensive plays Fedorov received a point on? Or that each player was involved (read: also received a point) in a large amount of the scoring plays? I just find it amazing how Fedorov is really this terrible player who was carried to greatness by these other players who... weren't as good as him at the time?
